Much newer than expected

I was surprised to find no marker earlier than 1982 here.  Given the location and extrance I was expecting some more plots for individuals laid to rest here long before the nearby dam was built.

Traffic noise from 620 is a constant companion, but there's a nice view of the Hill Country off the back of the property.

Still well kept

Stopped by this cemetery since I hadn't logged my visit when I documentated it some time back.  It looks largely the same except the low hanging telephone wire seems to have been fixed.

A guy on a motorcycle stopped to take a picture of Mr. England's consort's grave.  I'm not sure what that was all about!

Small but peaceful

This is one of the smallest cemeteries you'll likely encouter with only four plots.  Stopped by to log the visit since I'd failed to do so when I documented some time back.

Progress keeps closing in

I stopped by for a visit to make my log official.  Photos here are from a previous visit.  One my original visit a long time ago there was no auto dealer next door.  Though things are more closed in the cemetery seemed better kept.  Perhaps the local businesses have a reason to help keep things clean?

Largely empty, or appears to be

Seems like a lot of space here, though some plots may be filled with no marker.  I've seen a number of temporary markers there years after the burial.  I stopped by to register the visit - the photos are from an earlier stop.

Thankfully, some road maintenance being done did not result in the cemetery entrance sign being taken down.  It's still standing guard.
